RESULTS HERE ENCOURAGING

TROPICAL ULCERS ONCE THOUGH
CLEANED UP BY NEWLY DEVEIL(


-c'.Incurable. cases of tropical
.'ucers are being healed in three
to five weeks by an ointment spe-
cially developed for Haitiby the
Rev. Harry Stanley, a Wesleyan
Methodist missionary from Shock
ton, Ohio.

The missnnary, who is now on
his eighth visit to Haiti, never
had any in-edical training, never
treated a patient ih his life -
until he came to this republic
four years ago and saw some of
the, advanced cjavav cases here.
A1 felt the burden of their suf-
feting heavy on my heart, the
Rev. Stanl-y sa'd. ,


A practical man, the missiona-
ry ama3se'l rolls of 35 mm mo-
tion film and, armed with concre-
te evidence, toured the U.S. in
search of help.
He collected funds for missio-
nary work here through 4free-
will& offerings taken up in the
churches nt ahll denominations
ihat he visited.

Finally, the evangelist's deter-
mination was rewarded. A man
in the congregation approached
him after a cinema showing and
confided that he had a prescrip-
tion, passed down from genera-

which-was famed for skin cancer
treatment..
The church member offered
his prescription on one -condi-
tion: it was not to be commercia-
lised. Haitian peasahts should be
treated without charge.
Rev. Stanley pocketed the heir-
loom secret and boarded the ear-
liest clipper to Port au Prince.
For the pasi year, the missiona-
ry has been experimenting with
the ointment (based on an extract
from red-oak bark with benz6tic
and salicylic acid added) and has
made frequent trips to the U.S.
in quest of information and funds
'o continue his programme.
Books, pharmacists and doe-
tors across the U.S. were tapped
for helpful suggestions by the de-
termined preacher.
Re' crossed the Caribbean time
and again'with new chemicals ad-
ded to the ointment which was
already producing fairly favora-
ble results. Public Health offi-
cials here welcomed him from
the start with wide open arms,
offering their facilities, services
and advice without reservation.
Finally in February, 1955, the,
-miracle, unguent was complet-.
ed.
Working under Dr.Athemas
Bellerive, head of the Haitian Pu-
blic Health Service, the Rev.
Stanley and his family have been
touring the Southern provinces,

coff.
The results achieved have been

1S NATIONAL INDUSTRY GETTING FAIR DEAL
No. 3 IN A SERIES

CITY SHOE CORP..' HAS NO COMPLAINTS,
BENEFIT MUTUAL IN RELATIONS WITH COUNTRY


At left Mr. Liautaud and a
shipme


The smart raffia and meranga
straw shoes that are now being
sold in all the better shoe salons
in the Uriited'States and Canada
are hand made products of Hai-
ti. The company responsible for
Smanufacturing these, shoes is
the City Shoe Corp., S.A., situat
cd on a scenic hill overlooking
Cities Magloire No 1 and No 2.
The factory is in operation
September -to June: employing
475 people. In addition to these
workers, there are over 500 who
earn a livelihood by braiding
raffia at their homes. This im-
portant phase of the business is
ably handled by Mr. Roger Chan
cy. He has complete responsibi-
lity for bleaching and dying the
many colors of raffia required.
In addition to the various colors,
Sthe braids are made in many
widths, referred to as c 5, 7, and
11 folded hrlids &. A completely
new type of braid know as open
wave. was introduced to Haiti
by the City Shoe Corp. two years
ago. Until that time, all these
braids had to be imported from
Italy. To nake 'them here was no
easy task and required quite an
expenditure for materials .and
training of workers. However,
the opeq.weve braids here now,
are superior to thbse formerly
imported from Italy.,
The completed braids are sent
to the dfittIng robm, where the
uppers are made. This depart-
ment is headed by efficient and
hard working Mr. Max Desert
and is the key to a successful
shoe factory, as it is here that
60% of each shoe is made. The
uppers are made in exactly the
same quantities in accordance
with orders placed by the custo-
mers. This in itself is a' moru-
mental task, as the shoes range

Already, the Commune has held the competition to decide
the theme songg of Carnival 1956, and the winning tune is
to be announced soon.
Already over thirty floats have been entered by business-
men. And last Sunday the dancing bands roamed the streets
in the gayest costumes seen for a long time, dancing with
the true Mardi Gras spirit, gay to the point of turbulence.
This was an encouraging sight: from aging adults to tiny
children frollicked through the streets dressed in masque,
trade costume, painted and happy.
Mardi Gras 1956 promises to be the greatest, biggest, gay-
est ever. a time of celebration unequalled in the country's
annals. It can be if every individual puts his, or her, heart
into the fete, contributing in every possible way.
Carnival is unrivalled as a tourist attraction. and it's the
people that make Carnival.

A masterpiece of the Swiss Watch Industry No. 1 on
the buying list of every tourist visiting Haiti.


p_ A Caterpillar D2 Tractor, operating is,
_.3rd gear, at 3 MPH, will pull four 14- inch
- moldboard plows 6 inches deep in veiy
' heavy soil.
It will plow 1 '_ acres per hour, using
less than 2 gallons of low-cost Diesel f el.
Unlike wheel-type tractors, LE!, .. i-
thine can operate on steep slopes or rv. ,
marshy ground without excessive whp-
page. Yet, the broad steel tracks exert less
ground pressure per square inch than the.
weight of a man's foot. Consequently,
with this type of tractor, your soil
remains more porous, easier to till and.
more productive.
Equipped with a bulldozer, this trac-
tor can build roads, remove trees and
stumps, build drainage ditches and stock
watering ponds, level land or fill in eroded
fields.


It can also be equipped with a loader,
rear power take-off or an agricultural
tool bar. r
Let us tell you more about this modern
agricultural giant. IL is more economical
'than and can outwork a wheel-type
tractor of comparable horsepower or aey
combination of animals.
